Oh, I've seen some bad ones. Bright Purple, neon green (w/shamrocks, I don't think they expected it to come out that particular shade of green, but I guess by the time they figured it out there was no turning back, lol).
If the house fairy came to visit, what would you have the house fairy do to/for your house or home?
Oooooh, I'd be in heaven with a house fairy!
Redo all the floors, Paint about 4 rooms, heck if I had a fairy I just might have my countertop replaced because I don't like the colors, plus I might just have her build a sunroom off the deck and a balcony for my bedroom, maybe an addition on top of the garage, install a hot water heater...................

I know, I am really pushing the envelope here, but you did say fairy!

Wow, you're up early (or late), Alice! Since I'm off to bed in just a few, I'll get a head start on Friday by answering your questions.

Question of the Day:

What color is your house (or apartment, condo, modular, mobile home, RV, camper, cave) ?


Plain white aluminum siding with pale grey shutters and shingles.

What color would you like it to be?

I don't mind it being white, but I have a particular fondness for deep green shutters on a white house. My grandparents' 200-year-old home (a former inn on the Erie Canal in upstate New York) was white clapboard with dark green shutters, and I guess it imprinted on me.

What is the most hideous color or color combination you have ever seen on a house (or apartment, condo, modular, mobile home, RV, camper, cave)

When we lived in Texas near the Mexican border, there was a house that was painted honest-to-goodness Pepto-Bismol pink. It was beyond ghastly. Even the door was that garish shade, and I felt as though I needed to put on sunglasses to drive past it even on a cloudy day.

If the house fairy came to visit, what would you have the house fairy do to/for your house or home?

Oh, goodness. Well, we'd start by raising the house to put in a new foundation, so the basement walls would stop leaking. Then I'd have her move one bathroom wall over about a foot so I could sit down on the throne without my knees pressing into the edge of the tub. I'd have her flip the stairs around so that the steps go to the basement from the side door and the steps to the second floor go up from the living room, not the side door. Then I'd ask her to raise the roof about two feet and put a REAL second floor in, instead of the semi-finished attic that's up there now, along with a real bedroom and a 3/4 bath. Oh, and take out the crappy old carpet and refinish all the hardwoods underneath.

Come to think of it, let's let the house fairy just bypass our place, and you send the lottery fairy over instead!

Very true. Reminds me of the saying that was coined before divorce was more readily available: "Marry in haste, repent at leisure."

Question of the Day:
What color is your house (or apartment, condo, modular, mobile home, RV, camper, cave) ?
Red brick.

What color would you like it to be?
Red brick.

What is the most hideous color or color combination you have ever seen on a house (or apartment, condo, modular, mobile home, RV, camper, cave)
A weird purplish pink or pinkish purple. And bright! It looked like they were trying to establish a visual aid so that airplanes could land by it.

If the house fairy came to visit, what would you have the house fairy do to/for your house or home?
I would like the house fairy to forego the house or call his cousin, the yard fairy, and build a nice in-ground pool in the backyard.
